Subject: Pigpen's contribution to the beautiful jam
So everyone's praising the beautiful dialogue between the string men and drummers, but...isn't that Pigpen playing keys very softly in the background? I thibnk that's beautiful too and really adds to the jam.
Subject: to thankutapers
December 5, 1971 in NYC is a must have. Best Jack Straw, Brown-Eyed, Tennessee, Ramblin'.
They were being simulcast over WNEW-FM, and they put in extra effort. Jerry played with NRPS for 90 minutes to open the show, and there's even some good talk with Bill Graham and Scott Muni between sets. Bill tells how he ran down and tackled a ticket thief outside the Garden just before the show! Also Graham cursing the people who were standing on the seats.
One more note to thankutapers: start at May of 1972, (Pigpen's last performance with the band) and work your way backward.
Subject: multiple sources here?
Hard To Handle through Me And My Uncle sounds like it came from an alternative source. It's a bit echo-y and mono-ish compared to the rest of the recording. It's different enough that I'm surprised to see no mention of it anywhere in the notes.
Subject: BEST OF!?!?!?
This is the most cohesive mellow and beautiful jam out of dark star I have ever heard, and I have heard a couple. Even the feelin groovy jams don't have this vibe.
my 1st concert was a dead show 16 in 1990 of course u love the shows youve been 2 so i really got into the 90's (jerry man we miss u) but every1 talks about the 70's never really got into just 7o's dead but man they where tight on fire for me definitly there gratest years sure there r special nuggets throughout the years but musicly speaking wow,any must have 70's show i should get??besides the whole decade???
Subject: ...jam out of wharf rat...
...for those keeping score, and who like to reference jams with some reference to the language of music, bob weir is moving in a scaler fashion to a Bminor, from the Asus2, creating the feel for the first 3 minutes of this very nice piece of improvisation...what makes it so cohesive is the fact that phil actually stays with him, instead of moving into the cosmos with it...though not the most daring jam I have heard, extremely easy on the ears, and quite beautiful..."I was born too late...blame it on..."

Subject: The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live On Stage" February 18, 1971 at the Capitol Theater, Port Chester, New York, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA
Classic 71' Sound.
Get all the shows at the Capitol Theater, February 18,19,20,21, 1971.
A hop, skip and a jump from NYC, Port Chester was a great place to see the DEAD.
Garcia uses his WAH-WAH pedal on "Sugar Magnolia".
I recommend using your EQ during playback of most of the shows on the IA, this one included.
Windows Media Player has a 10 band EQ and SRS WOW effects that enhance the sound.
Here's one way to stream/download this show:
The IA recommends users of Windows XP view this web-page with RealPlayer.
RealPlayer is a free media player you can download at www.realplayer.com.
Using RealPlayer to view this webpage, click the VBR M3U link to open the songs in the Playlist.
If your Playlist is not open, open it by clicking the Playlist icon at the lower right hand corner of RealPlayer.
Once the songs are in the Playlist, double click the song to play it, then click the record button at the lower left hand corner of Realplayer to record it.
When the red line reaches the other end click the stop button to download the song. Your song is in the RealPlayer Downloads folder.
Repeat these steps for each song.
Hook up audio cables (1/8th inch stereo male jack with two rca male jacks at the other end) from your headphone jack on your computer to your audio input on your Reel to Reel, Cassette,VHS, CD, DVD, MP3, recorder and record it in real time...duh?
Eat, Drink, Be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD, for tomorrow we may die....
Thanks for the LOVE from 1971.
Wonderful jam there going back into Dark Star. You can find another divinely inspired Dark Star in 1972-03-23. There is another breathtaking jam that takes place at the end of that one.
Subject: Dark Star > Wharf Rat > Dark Star
The title of my post says all that needs to be said. Even if you've had your fill of (the many excellent) 1971 Dead Shows the Dark Star > Wharf Rat > Dark Star ranks up there with the greatest jams in Dead history. I will be so bold as to say that the jam between Wharf Rat and Dark is probably the greatest 5 minutes of pure improvisation I've heard. The dialogue between Jerry, Bob, Phil, and the drummers really get to the heart of what the Dead were all about.
i have completely fallen in love with this lil gem!!!! i cannot believe only 2000 ppl have downloaded it! i cannot believe on 2 ppl have commented about it?!?!?!? people.... GET THIS SHOW!!!
